The update 1.16 does not execute. It says the file cannot be accessed or I don't have the permissions to run it after I extract it and run.
I've downloaded 3 different times (only FTP #2 on the matrix site worked), used run as administrator as well. This is not for steam.
This is not the beta or at least does not say it's a beta but the panzerfaust upgrade.
Any ideas?

Hi gdpsnake1979,

Perhaps you'll need to right click on the extracted EXE and select Run as Administrator?

Hi, sadly I'm very simple when it comes to PCs: I do know how directory paths and folders work. Installed the new update but the Community Pack content disappeared. I've got the folder that contains the Community Pack games. Now, does this have to be copied to a new sub-directory, or renamed?

If you're kind enough to answer do please keep it childishly clear.

Cheers


Hi Odenathus,

You are not doing anything wrong as the existing Community Pack campaigns are at the moment incompatible with v1.16.00 and this is why they are no longer showing in the SELECT CAMPAIGN screen.

These have also been updated and will be packaged and released shortly so that you can continue playing them under v1.16.00

Hubert

From ..\CommunityPack to ..\Community Pack\Campaigns


I had to do the following.
Check if you still have ..\CommunityPack
It should contain all the necessary files and directories

For ease of use create a new directoryin the game folder (if not already present)
..\Community Pack
Create sub folder if not already present
..\Campaigns

Now copy content from ..\CommunityPack to ..\Community Pack\Campaigns

Check
If it works you can opt to clean up the old file and directory

DISCLAIMER, mess around at your own risk.


Hi Simulacra53,

My guess is you had previously applied the v1.16.00 Beta? If so then moving the Community Pack campaigns as you've described would work as they would be compatible with the official v1.16.00 release. However, for those that have not applied the Beta, the updated Community Pack will resolve the issue shortly.

Hubert

Units can be upgraded when adjacent to enemy units now. This is not listed in the fixes, features etc. that I can see. Was it intended?

[Edit]: I missed the fact that France has not declared war on Germany in turn 1, which is when I could upgrade. If I could delete this post I would.

Just as feedback, no it was the full Steam patch, not the beta thread.
I run a Steam version on desktop and non-Steam on laptop.

Also did a file verification on Steam after manually removing directories - call it exploratory testing.

I did not take notes

These steps solved my problem, it may work for others or give some info - but needs confirmation / replication.

Nothing too big.

EDIT: for the record
Just deleted the Steam install
Reinstalled a clean 1.16

The community pack was not working.
The new directory structure is created (..\Community Pack\Campaigns), but the community pack files themselves are in the old directory (..\CommunityPack)

Hope this helps a little

Found another 1.6 Panzerfaust issue (or at least I never noticed before)

The standard Campaign directory structure contains Bitmap\Major_04 folder with unit_sprites that will overrule the mod in the regular Bitmap\Major_04 folder

Strategic Command WWII War in Europe\Campaigns\_CAMPAIGN-NAME\Bitmaps\Major_04

will override

Strategic Command WWII War in Europe\Bitmaps\Major_04
So either the mod has to include the Campaign folders, alternatively you can remove or rename the _CAMPAIGN-NAME\Bitmaps folder
(EDIT - looks like you need to add the extra Campaign Bitmap folders).

Not sure why the Campaign folders needs to have a separate unit_sprites set for the Soviet Union?


The good news - other than this the WaW mod IronX seems to work on WiE, including flags (except the campaign folders)

WaW > WiE 1.5

ALM = Allied minor
AXM = Axis minor
M01 = Britain (same 1.5)
M02 = France (same 1.5)
M03 = USA (same 1.5)
M04 = Soviet (same 1.5)
M05 = Poland (same 1.5)
M06 = China (n/a 1.5)
M07 = Britain/India (Germany 1.5)
M08 = Germany (Italy 1.5)
M09 = Italy (n/a 1.5)
M10 = Japan (n/a 1.5)

Now WaW = WiE 1.6

Reapplying the 1.15.02 patch after installing v1.16.00 is likely to cause issues, your best bet is to uninstall the game, reinstall the original game and then apply the 1.15.02 patch after that.

Thanks and that does clarify it if you are running the Steam version as it looks like the Community Pack is indeed installing to the incorrect directory when updating. Moving it as you've done resolves it for now and we are looking into correcting this as soon as possible as well as to sort out the Matrix install of the Community Pack.

Hi Simulacra53,

Thanks for this and in a technical sense this is not actually an issue, but a feature that allows campaigns to modify the default graphics as needed, including the default campaigns.

The reason for this is that for the USSR, we have our own modification in place that alters the default Pillbox slot to allow the Soviets to have specialized Shock Troops instead.

This is why the Bitmaps\Major_04 folder is included in the campaign subfolder, and the good news is that any other graphical mod, such as the IronX mod, can be structured to also overwrite campaign modfications as needed, which the IronX mod does.

Hopefully this makes sense,
Hubert

Was it previously working? If so, then I would suggest perhaps a reboot might resolve the issue?

If it is due to something else, and if you can outline what changes you possibly made, this will help us track down the issue.

Hubert

For the Matrix version of the Community Pack, the download link and installer can be found here:

https://www.matrixgames.com/members/publicDL.asp?gid=714

It will properly install to your USER folder for the game and I can confirm it works as expected.

Sorry, Hubert, but which of the Community Packs is the latest, because the dates/version numbers seem to contradict each other?

Thanks for taking time to explain the mechanics, I suspected something like a variable sprite set but I was too lazy to compare them all.
Looking forward to playing with the latest patch!

Apologies for the confusion.

1) If you are keeping v1.15.02 or have reverted to v1.15.02, then install the community pack listed as v1.10 (if you've already installed a community pack prior to the v1.16.00 update then reinstalling should not be necessary)

2) If you've updated to v1.16.00, then install the community pack listed as v1.16.00

In the meantime, I'll see if we can get that page to be a bit more intuitive.

Dear Hubert, we are in the middle of very interesting Campaign games. I won't start any new with 1.15.02, but I really would like to finish them - the 3 month limit until you disable the PBEM mode for the ongoing 1.15.02 games is by far too short. Please keep it active for longer.

Thanks,
Hanno

¿Is it any way to keep playing the current games (without Steam)?

¿Will it work to uninstall everything and add patch 1.15.02 if somebody have it?

Yes great game. Authors are very diligent to clear up any tech issues, never an issue.

I'd buy on Matrix and transfer code to Steam (if u use Steam). Goes on sale from time to time.
